well, ok, you want to send the webcam image. Is that it? Cause you have 2 options, return a page with the image in it, or just return the image itself (easiest method).

Tell me which you wanna do and I'll tell ya how to do it.

ok, well, i'd like to return a page w/ the image, that way i can adjust how the page looks, where the image is placed, and plus, include either an applet or meta tag that refreshes the window, ala a sort of streaming video type thing.//

well here you go. First I'll tell ya why it's not working. All your program ever sends is the HTML. It's not sending the Image. So you need to learn how to detect when the browser is requesting that image. Here's one example of how the protocol would look:

Code:
BROWSER CONNECTS TO SERVER
 
BEGIN BROWSER REQUEST
GET / HTTP/1.1
Host: 209.6.98.47
User-Agent: Internet Explorer
Connection: Keep-Alive
 
END BROWSER REQUEST
 
BEGIN SERVER RESPONSE
HTTP/1.1 200 Ok
Content-Type: text/html
Connection: Closed
 
<HTML><BODY>
  <IMG SRC="image">
</HTML></BODY>
END SERVER RESPONSE
 
SERVER DISCONNECTS
BROWSER CONNECTS TO SERVER
 
BEGIN BROWSER REQUEST
GET /image HTTP/1.1
Host: 209.6.98.47
User-Agent: Internet Explorer
Connection: Keep-Alive
 
END BROWSER REQUEST
 
BEGIN SERVER RESPONSE
HTTP/1.1 200 Ok
Content-Type: image/gif
Connection: Closed
 
[IMAGE]
END SERVER RESPONSE
 
SERVER DISCONNECTS
So now, here's a suggestion for the code in your DataArrival event:

Lines = Split(Data, vbcrlf)
Fields = Split(Lines(0), " ")

If Fields(1) = "/image" Then
'Send Header and image file
Else
'Send header and HTML page
End If
